Support Our Local Businessescouple shopping for jewelry at elizabeth city jewelry store

While mandated closures and reopening guidelines are being followed, local businesses are still working to provide for the community and visitors. Even if you aren't comfortable visiting these businesses in person, consider ordering dinner to-go, shopping online, or even buying a gift card for later to support our local businesses and their employees!

We all have a role to play in keeping our communities safe and healthy. When visiting restaurants, businesses and other public places, you can have a huge impact on the well-being of everyone in our community just by following a few simple guidelines. Take the Count On Me NC pledge and show you’re doing your part to help.
